When Is The Next UAE Holiday?

While the majority of employees in the UAE are still enjoying their long Eid Al Adha break, others are going back to work, especially those who go on work during weekends.

The big question is… when is the next UAE holiday?

Citing the announcement made by the UAE Cabinet last December 2020, the country’s next public holiday would be on Thursday, August 12, marking the Islamic New Year.

This date, however, is time according to local sightings of various phases of the moon. The date is only given in approximation. This can be subject to change.

Below are the rest of the holidays for 2021:

October 21: Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) birthday

December 1: Commemoration Day

December 2-3: National Day
